Clearstream’s Line of MediDefense Antimicrobial Products Scores Affinity Partnership With American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA)

Harrisburg, NC (PRWEB) March 05, 2015

As a result of the American Academy of Physician Assistants’ (AAPA) review of Clearstream, LLC’s products, services and company philosophies, the AAPA determined that Clearstream’s MediDefense line of products—led by their mPulse Hand Sanitizer—fits the core concepts of the AAPA’s Affinity Partner Program.

The AAPA—which represents a profession comprising than 100,000 certified physician assistants across all medical and surgical specialties in the U.S.—advocates and educates on behalf of the profession and the patients served by PAs. The organization’s vetting process was conducted under the leadership of Lisa Gables, Chief Financial Officer/Chief Development Officer of the AAPA, who commented, “This [Affinity Partnership] followed an extensive due diligence effort, but was significantly prompted by Clearstream’s non-alcohol-based Hand Sanitizer’s ability to remain effective against a wide range of pathogens such as influenza, MRSA, Staph, E. coli, etc. for extended periods of time of up to 8 hours.”

Through their Clearstream-mPact Technology Partnership, Clearstream has successfully developed a number of specifically targeted product lines, most notably their MediDefense brand. The MediDefense mPulse Hand Sanitizer is part of a complete suite of products that deliver long-lasting, highly effective and safe antimicrobial surface protection, textile and laundry technologies, and personal use products for the healthcare professional.

According to Anthony Daddona, COO of Clearstream, many traditional hand sanitizers currently available to the public only remain effective for a very short time—typically until the alcohol evaporates. “If a person then touches anything—such as a door knob, computer, elevator button, etc.—they can instantly become re-contaminated,” Daddona said.

Daddona’s statement is echoed by studies which question the effectiveness of conventional alcohol-based hand disinfectants. During one study published in the American Journal of Infection Control, CDC researchers found that staff in long-term care facilities who relied too much on alcohol-based hand sanitizers experienced an increased chance of contracting of norovirus-related illness (1)—a worrying thought at the height of the flu and influenza season that now is showing “elevated flu activity in all parts of the country.” (2)

To counter the possibility of lost efficacy associated with traditional hand sanitizers on the market, Clearstream’s MediDefense mPulse Hand Sanitizer has been manufactured with an FDA-approved alternative base comprising active and carefully selected additional ingredients designed to deliver safe and highly effective protection that will remain on the skin for hours after its initial application, even after multiple hand washings. Additionally, Clearstream’s proprietary long-term antimicrobial technology has been integrated to enhance and preserve extended protection. mPulse is a nontoxic, alcohol-free formula that combines immediate and long-term protection that kills 99.99% of bacteria and germs on contact.

Clearstream’s scientists have over 40 years of experience in antimicrobial and surfactant chemistries and their applied sciences—their technology has been employed in many hospitals, including Sloan Kettering and MD Anderson. The company is also working with Division One university and college athletic programs, such as Illinois and Ohio State, as well as professional sports franchises in the NFL and NBA that include the Miami Dolphins, Washington Redskins, Minnesota Vikings, Cleveland Browns, Milwaukee Bucks and the Miami Heat in their locker rooms and training facilities to control pathogenic surface transmission of microbial threats, such as MRSA, Staph, E. coli and mold.

In addition to Clearstream’s flagship MediDefense mPulse Hand Sanitizer, the MediDefense system includes other forms of antimicrobial and antibacterial protection. mPower Laundry Detergent combines powerful cleaning properties with an EPA-registered static antimicrobial, infusing fabric with long-term protection from microorganisms that builds cumulatively with repeated washings. MediDefense rounds out its Total Touch Protection Suite of products with the groundbreaking mPale antimicrobial surface protection and the highly effective mPerial disinfectant.
